Weight Management Team

The Weight Management Team are Specialist Dietitians who provide a service across Liverpool in collaboration with other agencies (including Walk for Health, Active Living and Liveability), to empower patients to make changes towards diet and lifestyle.

The team work closely with the Food Worker Team providing patients with the practical food skills and experience to translate the nutritional advice from the dietitians into practice.

Group sessions are offered in South, Central and North of the city; there is a limited number of evening groups available. The group sessions run for 12 weeks. This service requires a GP referral.
